However, the Vatican, situated as it is in the centre of Rome, fully supported the rise to power of the fascist dictator Mussolini, and aligned itself with the political far-right.

In ancient days, according to the records of history, the welfare of the nation and the welfare of the religion were regarded as synonymous terms by the laity as well as by the Sangha. The divorce of religion from the nation was an idea introduced into the minds of the Sinhalese by invaders from the West, who belonged to an alien faith.
